HISTORY OF NATURAL GEMS
"How are gemstones formed?"
Natural gemstones are formed through natural processes within the earth's crust taking millions of years to grow. They are formed only when all conditions to form a specific gemstone are satisfied naturally through coincidence when many natural elements and minerals are assembled at a certain temperature and pressure followed by slow cooling. Every natural gemstone undergoes this process and involves great human effort in finding these sources and mining them, extracting them from ore, and shaping them for you.
Why Rare? Gemstone deposits are not found all over the world but they are discovered only in few locations. Out of the total gemstones extracted, approximately, only 1/100th is of Gem Quality and out of these less than 5% are more than 3 carats. Thus finding a clear-transparent (not included) and beautifully colored gemstone is very rare.
